Recent Projects list + VST Libraries paths deleted

Hi all,

The following behavior occurs frequently:

  1. VST Library paths are reset
  2. List of recently opened projects both in the splash screen and “file/open” are deleted/reset
    3.Cubase starts asking for confirmations on actions I’ve previously asked not to be prompted such as removing VST from a channel or deleting a channel.
  3. Cubase prompts to load in safe mode, even if it was properly shut down.

Windows 10, currently on Cubase 11, however this is a recurring issue for me since version 10 or so.

This has been mega-frustrating, no idea where to look.

Help appreciated!
